I was able to get down to the pool store this afternoon and talk numbers with the guy. If they had their 'painters' do the job, it would run me up toward the 2 grand mark. That's with good...

Thanks guys!

Like I said - it wasn't really an issue, there were no problems with it all. It was just a personal curiousity and "installer's preference" pretty much said it all.

Hiya Newt!

P.O. = Previous Owner (of the house). Seems like they planted them just prior to selling.

Opinions on this, please?
